Alberta Construction Magazine – Winter 2010
A new three-step restoration and protection system for above-grade concrete structures is available from Kryton International Inc.
Available since Sept. 1, the Hydrostop Restore & Protect System greatly extends the useful life of aging concrete infrastructure and buildings, improves overall aesthetics and offers a more environmentally sustainable alternative to total replacement, the company says.
The first step in the system uses a non-shrink waterproof grout to repair cracks and defects at the concrete surface. Once the substrate is repaired, the entire concrete surface is coated with polymerized, cementitious slurry. This layer provides a durable barrier against water and chemical intrusion and improves the concrete’s overall aesthetics. The third step creates a long-lasting water repellent effect on the concrete surface by using a blended silane-siloxane sealer.
